Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center

The story of Milton S. Hershey and the town of Hershey, PA is one of struggle and triumph. And, as anyone who lives in Hershey can attest, the story goes much deeper than the world-famous chocolate. Once Milton Hershey found success in his chocolate factory, he began a lifelong quest to not only build a town around his factories, but a community of people that lived well and cared for one another. Nowhere is his spirit of giving and caring more evident than in the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

Hershey PA Medical Center

The History of the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center

In 1963, the planning for the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center began and ground was broken in 1966. Penn State's College of Medicine accepted it's first class of students in 1967 and the first patients walked through the door of the Medical Center in 1970.

The original buildings of the 318-acre Medical Center included the Medical Science Building, the Animal Research Farm, the Laundry and Steam Plant, and the University Manor Apartments. Over the years, the campus expanded to 550 acres as a number of buildings and departments were added, including the addition of a state-of-the-art Children's Hospital in 2012.

Today, the College of Medicine offers programs in almost every area including biochemistry, integrative biosciences, and neuroscience and two post-doctoral programs including Laboratory Animal Medicine. The center also provides continuing education for health care professionals throughout the state.

Funding for the Medical Center

Aside from delicious chocolate, the greatest gift that Milton S. Hershey gave was his generosity. The M.S. Hershey Foundation was established to help organize and finance cultural and educational enrichment. In 1963, along with a grant from the U.S. Public Health Service, the M.S. Hershey Foundation gave $50 million to Penn State University so a medical school, teaching hospital, and research center could be built. Today, the medical center receives grants to fund many of its research projects from institutions such as the American Cancer Society and the National Science Foundation along with a number of federal, state, and private sponsors.

Services Provided

The Medical Center provides a full range of services to the Hershey community. From visits to a certified nutritionist to learn the fundamentals of healthy living to transplantation surgery and cosmetic surgery, a full staff of some of the best physicians, specialists, nurses, and administrators are ready to help.

In addition to regular services, the Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital stands ready to provide hope and healing to sick children and their families. As the largest facility between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, the 23,000 square foot Children's Hospital was built to help ease fears and provide a positive healing environment for young patients. The Four Diamonds Fund assists children and their families tackle the financial burdens of childhood cancer.

The Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute was opened in 2009 to specialize in fighting cancer through advanced prevention, diagnosis, and treatment programs. Along with a state-of-the-art radiation oncology suite and chemotherapy infusion pharmacy on-site, the institute also offers an outdoor healing garden for patients and their families based on the firm belief that healing must come from all around.
